Sax in the city — bandshell, that is

Tonight’s installment of Sequim’s Music in the Park concert series will feature the Olympic Sax Quartet.

The band will perform a variety of tunes at the James Center bandshell just north of Carrie Blake Park, 202 N. Blake Ave. from 6 p.m. to about 8 p.m.

Admission is free. All ages are welcome.

Bring a lawn chair or blanket. Tap your toes — or bring your dancing shoes and get up to dance to the band’s upbeat music.

Tote a picnic basket or grab some food from a downtown store or restaurant.

The Tuesday concerts are sponsored by Karl Allen and John Rigg of ADR Developers; Team McAleer; Clark Land Office; Gray and Osborne; William Littlejohn Cos.; Dungeness Courte; Lakeside Industries; Jarmuth Electric; Bekkevar Logging and Trucking; Northwest Eye Surgeons and Sequim This Week, the Peninsula Daily News’ free weekly newspaper for Sequim.

The PDN sponsors two other free summer concerts:

  • Concert on the Pier every Wednesday on the Port Angeles City Pier (this Wednesday features the country sounds of Soulshakers, a blues band, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.).

  • Concert on the Dock in Port Townsend every Thursday night at the Quincy Street dock (behind Water Street Brewing) from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. through Sept. 4. (Skeleton Crew, a Grateful Dead cover band, plays this Thursday.)
  • More in Life
